About this recipe: This is a recipe I've fine-tuned to suit my vegan mother's taste, which is quite the challenge considering her strict diet. So far, no one has noticed the avocados until I tell them! The base is made with ground almonds and dates instead of butter. The filling is sweetened with agave nectar so no refined sugar is needed. Decorate with grated coconut.
